“Whatever else history may say about me when I’m gone,
I hope it will record that I appealed to your best hopes,
not your worst fears; to your confidence rather than your doubts. My dream is that you will travel the road ahead with liberty’s lamp guiding your steps and opportunity’s arm steadying your way.” Ronald Reagan
